I have a old program called SuperWorks which is a MSDOS version of the orignal Appleworks. I have used this program as my database for many years on Windows 98. Is it possible to copy it from my old computer hard disk to my new Windows XP Pro computer disk and continue to use? This database is simple, extensive, and more than adequate for my purposes. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

it could work if you use compatibility mode in XP. copy the program over to your new computer, right click the program file, and go to properties. then go to the compatibility tab, and play around w/ the settings there.
